Re: "Pyramids of Waste" (Planned obsolescence documentary)
That was a really interesting documentary.
I had never heard of the term planned obsolescence but always suspected that some (or rather most) products are designed so that they will break or have parts fail in an untimely fashion. The story of the lightbulb was especially fascinating.
